Laura Newman Biography
I was born in New York and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I grew up in a very culturally diverse household, my mom being from Spain, and my dad from Colombia.
That alone gave me various ideas of lifestyle and fashion. The works of Karl Lagerfeld and Reed Krakoff have always inspired me. However, my interest in the world of fashion didn’t surface until I spent three months living in Paris. It really exposed me to the different styles and trends that I didn’t get a chance to see everyday back home. Currently, I am majoring in public relations and minoring in retail merchandising at Florida State University.
My dream is to one day open my own PR firm with an emphasis on the fashion industry. I am presently interning in the fashion division of the PR firm, Tara, Ink. This internship has given me some great first hand experience as to what I can expect, and I anxiously look forward to future opportunities that may be in store for me.
